This talk explores the persistence of a certain kind of technology in animation culture. Typically assembled from household objects, designed to complete simple domestic chores in an over-elaborate manner, 'mousetrap machinery' appears in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang', 'The Goonies', 'Little Big Planet' and, more recently 'Sing'. It is also a staple of Aardman Animation's the Wallace and Gromit series. The meaning of this machinery, and its longevity, is examined in relation to animation and modernity, children and screen culture, and tensions between utopian and dystopian perceptions of technologies' impact on everyday life. Includes extensive film and video clips.
